It's nearing midnight in Wyoming, where four young conservatives have gathered at a backyard after-party. They've returned home to toast their mentor Gina, newly inducted as president of a tiny Catholic college. But as their reunion spirals into spiritual chaos and clashing generational politics, it becomes less a celebration than a vicious fight to be understood. On a chilly night in the middle of America, Will Arbery's haunting play offers grace and disarming clarity, speaking to the heart of a country at war with itself.

Reviews

"A formally lovely, subtly horrifying play about the death rattle of ideologies and the thin line between devotion and delusion"

--New Yorker
"A perfect production that left me with my heart in my mouth."--Time Out New York

"Astonishing and riveting. Heroes risks a rare stage subject: Christian conservatism. A red-state unicorn."

--New York Times
